A Place at the Table: Becoming an HIV Advocate was the first in our eight-week webinar series that offers women living with HIV capacity building and training on HIV disease and treatment advocacy. During this first webinar, participants received an introduction to becoming an HIV advocate, an overview of how to use "people-first" and non-stigmatizing language, and various avenues to have a voice in the HIV planning and decision making process, led by leading women HIV advocates:
- Dawn Averitt: founder, The Well Project
- Vickie Lynn, MPH: The Well Project Community Advisory Board and A Girl Like Me blogger
- Grissel Granados: project coordinator, Children's Hospital Los Angeles
- Krista Martel, executive director, The Well Project
- Vanessa Johnson, co-owner, Ribbon Consultant Group
- Linda Scruggs, co-owner, Ribbon Consultant Group
Want more information on the topics presented in this webinar? The content used to create this webinar is largely based on fact sheets found on The Well Project's website. In order to assist you in your development as an HIV advocate, we have also created PDF slide sets for the fact sheets you can download and use to disseminate this information to others. Please note that the information in The Well Project's fact sheets and PDF slides are reviewed and updated regularly, so please check back often to make sure you have the most recent version when using as an educational tool.
